I adore this card, but then again I tend to adore every underwater-themed card I do!
I wanted to create a sea-themed card and wanted something a little different, so I came up with this.
It’s basically a smaller Diorama card adhered to the front of a 6 x 6 card blank, but you could attach it to any size card you want and the concertina folded part is easy to re-size.
I had lots of fun making this during a recent FB live Craft Along.
I mixed in the treasure chest from an old ‘For The Love Of Stamps’ stamp set and used my water drops from ‘Dress My Craft’ They look really effective, and really do look like water.
Both cards fold flat and will fit into a 6 x 6 envelope or one of my 6 x 6 box envelopes.
I loved colouring all the images and used my Arteza coloured pencils to do so.
